Under the weather, among other things...

Hello!  I've been out sick for the past couple of days.  I am, however, on the mend and decided that it was time to post some pics of the things I have been working on.  But first, some mail happiness.  I ordered these two weeks ago and wasn't sure I was actually going to get them ( I paid for expedited delivery but obviously that didn't happen!):

These are the newest additions to my Moleskine family.  For those who don't know, I lurv my moleskines.  I am using a soft covered, lined notebook as my everyday journal right now, I knit it a cozy little cover:

The Moleskine Passions line was just released and I was lucky to get in on a sale at Amazon.  I got the Book Journal and Film Journal so that I can keep track of my two main passions (other than crafting, of course!) and then I bought the Vancouver City Moleskine to record and help map out my upcoming trip.  Sooooo excited about that.  I just found out there is a cupcake shop in Vancouver that is regularly featured on the Food Network.  I will have to check that out!!!!
So, I blogged about covering my moleskine cahiers with fabric a la Elsie's tutorial.  Below are the results.  They are not embellished because I think I prefer them plain and I just can't see what I could/should add. 
I apologize for the poor lighting.  Soon they will hold my many ideas for blog posts, art journal ideas and random notes.

I have also been working on my journal for Vivianna's Quiet Nights Art Journal Class.  She's opened sign ups again so if you missed it the first time around, here's your chance!  I think I have decided to just use 8.5 x 11 inch cardstock on the inside but I like the idea that I can use and add whatever kind of paper suits my fancy:

I still have to put the title on.  I will try and get a better pic when it is done and I can show you the inside flaps.  I tried to get some shots of the details.  I am working on my photography skills!

I also bought a coil bound book and decorated it but didn't like how it turned out.  I bought a smaller one as well, which I haven't covered yet.  Definate problems with the Type A today.

So glad tomorrow is Friday.  I think I am feeling well enough to go back to work and then I have the weekend off again!  Yipeee!  Hope you're all having a great night.

AH! Your current projects are so cute! I love all the buttons over that art journal of yours and I'm excited to see some of your pages!

For some reason, I have a huge hesitation to put a fabric cover over my moleskine! I really don't know what my problem is because I think they're really cute! ...maybe I should just do it and stop being a baby. hahaha You should do some drawing and post them on your blog!

Wow--your Moleskines turned out so pretty.
I wanted to do the diy of Elsie's but my life right now is busy with three projects.
I would also love to see if you draw-:D
